I have a very large number (1460) of text objects with the same paragraph style which i need to apply a stroke to. Is there any way to do this with graphic styles? or any other way?

 

thank you

You can setup the Paragraph style with one of the default options (yes, it is strang you cannot change them).

Apply it to some text, select the characters and change the stroke.

In the Paragraph Styles menu choose > Redefine Paragraph Style

Modifying your paragraph styles in order to apply the strokes may be a way to do it.

 

Does that not work?

 

By the way, which version of Illustrator are you using,

Thank you so much for your reply - I can't see the option to apply a stroke on the paragraph style? It would be amazing if i could do that! Can you point me in the right direction on that? 

 

I'm using version 24.3 

 

thank you ever so much

ah I've just found it! I'd looked at the character colour option so many times too.... Unfortunately, it only allows fixed weights and I need a very light 0.1 - 0.15. 

 

So back to square one 😞 Can i apply a graphic style to a paragraph style?

 

Any help still most gratefully recieved.

Thank you, i found it but unfortunately it only allows fixed stroke weights, i need one in the range of 0.1 - 0.15. Wondering if a graphic style will be able to do this for me still. 

 

thank you

Hi.

I prefer the Graphic Styles because in Paragraph and Character Styles you only have fixed stroke weights.

This is how a create the Styles for texts GraphicStylesForText 

Best Regards

Well, Carlos, it can be done with graphic styles, but it is a very limited method since graphic styles are not able to carry most of the type specific settings that paragraph styles or character styles can provide.

 

Ton's suggestion may work, but it is a pretty daring way that may be unreliable in case one is going to exchange the paragraph styles. Importing them may (rather often) change the original style settings (unwanted rounding issues or even more strange misinterpretations, for example).
